BUT MY GOD SHALL SUPPLY ALL YOUR NEEDS ACCORDING TO HIS RICHES IN GLORY BY CHRIST JESUS. Phil 4:19


One of the names for God in the Old Testament is Jehovah-Jireh, which means the God who provides. God is concerned about all of our needs...physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually, and financially. When the Apostle Paul wrote this, he made it clear, God didn't just provide for some of our needs, but He will provide for ALL of our needs. 


When we are grieving, He provides comfort. When we are weak, He provides strength. When we are tempted, He provides a way of escape. When we needed a Savior, He gave us Jesus.


God knows our needs before we ask. We have seen in scripture how He takes a few fish and loaves of bread and makes more than enough. He can send manna from heaven, water from rocks, and a coin from a fish's mouth. He can make the blind to see, close the mouths of lions, and give oil to overflowing for a widow. God will provide what He thinks is best and often it is in a way that makes it clear, He is the one providing.


God's timing is rarely ours. He knows we need to learn things like patience, trust, and perseverance. He is looking out not only for our immediate needs but also for our long-term needs. He sees the bigger picture of our lives and He knows what we will need in our future as well. God has bountiful provision. He loves to lavish us with gifts that the world can't give or take away. His timing is always perfect. He will fulfill His promises to us. We can depend on His faithfulness.
